Yaskawa Academy courses provide classroom instruction combined with hands-on training (normally 2-student-per-robot ratio). Class size is limited to the number of robots that are available for the entire duration of the training session. With three U.S. facilities and more than 90 training robots, Yaskawa Academy offers the most complete robotics training package in the industry.

Yaskawa Academy is an Accredited Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).  In obtaining this accreditation, Yaskawa Academy has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation status, Yaskawa Academy is authorized to offer IACET CEU’s for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.  Each student who receives at least 70% on the final exam and satisfies the contact hours of the respective class, will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs). These CEU's records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by certification bodies, professional societies, or governmental licensing boards. These CEUs may qualify as college credit depending on the institution, and are awarded based on contact hours of the course. The Yaskawa Academy (formerly MTEC) is the first robotics training facility with IACET accreditation.
